So we won’t be able to buy any beys there in the past I have gotten beys at tournaments does it have to do with covid?

We should definitely be finished or very close to finishing by 4pm.

Not COVID, but the laws surrounding the sale of goods in public places like parks. You need to have a permit and most people who want to don't. If someone shows WBO Staff that they do, we can consider allowing them to do so at the tournament.
When would the Matches be posted or if they are for the Tourney? Just curious

You mean the tournament bracket? I'll make the page for that a few days before the event and link it here. But the actual matches won't be shown on the bracket until the day of the event when all participants are confirmed.

Got it, thanks
How many more tournaments will we, as a community, keep allowing Kei to make Japanese Rock references and get away with it, Scott-free?

Don't the wbo staff sell beys themselves. Like before there were giveaways and parts or beys you could buy from the wbo staff
Do pro series parts count as TT parts or can’t be used?

People have sold Beyblades at WBO events in the past, but it would have either been because they had a permit to do so or it would have been years ago when we weren't fully aware of what regulations in place. We've learned a lot over the years and that's why this rule is now in place. And to be clear, we can only enforce this rule at the tournament area itself; we can't control what happens outside of that.

Pro Series are Hasbro parts. They can be used in this tournament. You can see specific rulings for them here.
The most Toronto thing ever that you cannot sell a bey in a park. Fun police strike again.

Oh forgot to say, the area planned to be used is going to be extremely soggy at best, mud pit at worst, should we be bringing tarps?

I will be bringing tarps, but we should have access to the pavilion nearby
Tournament bracket pages have been created. Players will be added in tomorrow once the final participant list has been confirmed.


High park web site says it is closed, I assume this means we need to find street parking.
GG's everyone! Was fun not really a fan of P3C1 but was fun to battle with the new bey stuff, was great to see everyone at the event.
